Photography For A Cause

I’m really excited to announce that I’ve been asked to participate in this year’s “Photography For  A Cause” organized by La Brisa Photography.  Photography For A Cause was started by Chris of La Brisa Photography as a way to use his incredible talents to give back to the communities he has worked in.  For the…

Wandering around the Flint Hills

I had the opportunity earlier this week to spend some time wandering around in the Flint Hills, which is always a good way to spend a day.  The day started by meeting fellow photographers from the Kansascapes Photo Alliance at the Bird Runner Wildlife Refuge where we are going to shoot a year long project. …

Who needs the moon

The full moon today (Saturday the 20th) is supposed to be a ‘super full moon‘ where the full moons occurs when the moon is closest to the Earth (perigee).  The moon will be somewhere around 14% larger than normal.  I went out Friday evening to try and photograph the moon rise a day early.  Why…

Spring?

  Everyone knows that when life hands you lemons you make lemonade right? Well what do you do when life hands you a late snowfall when you are really tired of snow? You make photographs!   Yes I know, everyone is tired of snow.  But you have to admit, this was a really pretty snow.…

More Waterfalls and slow shutterspeeds

“You might as well go see”

  Last night we had some really thick fog move in and I had plans of getting up early this morning with the hopes of finding the countryside covered in hoarfrost.  Turns out it was too warm last night so nothing really froze (probably a good thing, slick roads aren’t really that good of a…

Some silhouettes and then the encore.

  Last weekend I was out and about in Marshall and Washington Counties with my Dad looking for some new photographic opportunities.  Early in the evening it looked like the sunset was going to be on the plain side of things, but right as the sun was going down some clouds appeared and conditions improved…

Mooned once again

Last Thursday I took advantage of the warm weather (temps in the 70’s!) to go out and photograph the moonrise.  One of the things  I try not to miss each month is a chance to photograph the moon rising.  One to two days before the actual full moon is a good time to do some…
